Tomorrow I hope to see snow flurries or squalls as I am scouting for Illinois’ firearm deer season opening next Friday. Just feels more like deer season when snow is flying, even an early non-sticking snow.

But I digress.

This evening, Nov. 11, I may make the drive to Plano for a topic that strikes my interests, still contemplating.

University of Illinois professor Cory Suski and his graduate student assistant will discuss the muskie-tracking study at Shabbona Lake at the monthly meeting of the Quad County Hawg Hunters chapter of Muskies, Inc. The club meets at 7:30 tonight at the American Legion, 510 E. Dearborn St., Plano, Ill. 60545.
